Very nice State of Florida Park, with cabins and campground areas. Day areas as well. Big sand dunes, one trail goes through the dunes. Miles of protected beach. Nice, clean and lakes too! Check it out!

Nice little park and campground. There is a mile long walking path here too through the dunes. It is sand you will be trekking through so wear appropriate shoes. Great beach area with restrooms too. We did encounter little tiny bugs all over us after visiting the trail. Bug spray would be a good idea.

Well worth spending a little to get to this clean, well-maintained beach. It has bathrooms, and doesn't allow cars like the public beach. Walk down the beach to Seaside for food and drinks or just hang out on the white sand.

Wonderful beach with lots of wild life. Took a long walk down the beach and we saw six dolphins playing in the distance. While we were swimming saw a sea turtle. Lots of room to spread out on the beach. added plus ... They have restrooms and a place to wash the sand off your feet. I think it is... More

Sugar sand and beautiful emerald waters. This State Park is absolutely beautiful. Each campsite is fairly private with lots of greenery between each site. We loved this place with easy access to the beautiful beach just a short drive within the park. There was hardly anyone there and we were happy to see this unspoiled section with no buildings littering... More

The sand is a white powder! No kidding! I've never seen a beach like this -- it's amazing! Very beautiful, quiet, peaceful. The cabins at Grayton Beach State Park are magnificent as well!

That doesn't happen in many places on this earth! Right across the parking lot and dunes, my husband reels in a red drum (more than a... More
